Apple Snail Shell Issue
I recently noticed my snails shell has been becoming thinner, and appearing white. He is also starting to loose his color. I dont know what I should do, Like add calcium or something. So please advise
He is in a 5 gallon with a betta and lots of live plants, plus plenty of other baby snails from my plants. My ph is 7 and nitrates and nitrites are both zero. I do a water change every weekend.
He eats normally, there used to be alot of algea on the tank that he would much on, but now there is alot less because I let my plants grow out pretty wild and thefore less algea grows. I also use two different algea waffers, shimp pellets a couple times a week, after him and the other snails eat them all.
You can see a black line where his shell was when we got him (september) and compare it now, so he has grown alot since we had him
Here is a pic
